Thanks, in no small part, to the sterling efforts of the Friends of Templecombe Station. And not forgetting Anne in the ticket office.

I am a member of FoTS but have only recently joined. In fact I joined the week the judging panel visited. My minimal input had no bearing on this award!

Congratulations to Templecombe -  the Friends, station staff, Blackmore Vale CRP, SWR (and anyone else involved).

Carrying on in the great tradition of the former Templecombe Station Promotion Group who used to do extremely well in BR's Best Kept Station Competition including winning it outright one year (around 93).  When that happened, they were taken home from Waterloo in the GM's Saloon hauled by a 33 (I was on it!).

The plaques are in the old waiting room.
